  Hi Julia,

  The program that counts the number of pages usually adds in about a third 
more than the real number of pages. It's willdly inaccurate at times.  I 
haven't checked it lately but in the past it was very bad.  If there's a 
particular bestseller you're interested in, I can tell you the real number of 
pages (since I have the original .rtf file here at home on my computer).

  Carrie

  Subject: [bksvol-discuss] number of pages in books

  Hi list. I was just going through the New York Times bestseller list and I 
  noticed that a lot of books seemed to be almost a thousand pages, but only 
  had a brf file size of two hundred and something kilobites, is this at all 
  possible? It seems to me they should be much bigger. Is there any way to 
  check if the page counter, or whatever is used to check pages is really 
  accurate? Maybe I'm totally off the mark here, but it seems like something 
  just isn't adding up in my opinion.
